Art Description

Photography: Digital, Black & White and Photography on Paper.

What you find behind the rodeo stands are friendships, funny stories and a whole lot of Americana. Small town rodeo preserves our threatened history and heritage. The thrusting broncs and the twisting in air bull riding is exciting of course, but it’s the coming together of old friends and family that keeps it an important part of who we are.

I feel this image brings out the artistry of rodeo, which is not normally seen in traditional sport imagery. The use of strong light and shadow reinforces an abstract quality of shape and form. The unknown riders become a story we can place ourselves into.

“Hurry up and wait” is part of my “White Hat” series, which was the manifestation of a little luck and not having the right equipment. I had never photographed a rodeo and didn’t have the correct equipment to shoot fast moving broncs and bull riders at night. I had pretty much given up on photography for the night and climbed high up on the review stand for a better view of the action. The back of the review stand overlooked the holding area for the upcoming contestants. This back stage area was removed from the crowd, lit by dim spots and filled with cowboys preparing for their rides. What resulted were these powerful, grainy, black and whites.

These images are orthochromatic in nature with a contemporary modern quality.
